MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Prosecutor’s supervision over the investigation of terrorist acts should be made more efficient, head of the Russian presidential staff Sergei Ivanov believes.
“The supervision over the investigation of the crimes, primarily terrorism-related crimes, should be made more efficient,” Ivanov said at a festive meeting devoted to Russia’s Day of Worker of Prosecutor’s Office.
He noted that the terrorists who decided to encroach on the life and health of Russian citizens should understand clearly that inevitable punishment awaits them according to the law.
The Kremlin high-ranking official also noted that extremism-related crimes should be investigated more thoroughly. “In our multinational country bellicose nationalism, religious and inter-ethnic strife should be out of place,” he said, urging the prosecutors to give tough assessment to violations in this sphere.
Meanwhile, Ivanov noted that the prosecutor’s supervision is also needed in the observance of Russian laws by foreigners, Ivanov noted. He cited the data of the Federal Migration Service that at least 3.6 million foreigners are employed illegally in Russia. “The task of the prosecutor’s offices is to engage actively in complex work to repair this situation and establish civilized relations on the labor market,” the head of the presidential staff said.
In his view, the counteraction to corruption remains a top priority for the prosecutor’s offices. “There are certainly some results in this sphere and we will discuss them,” Ivanov pledged.
Meanwhile, he noted the law enforcement agencies are repaid less than 10 percent of damages and the payments of fines do not exceed one percent. Meanwhile, it was already stated many times and this situation should be changed, the Kremlin high-placed official said.
Alongside, Ivanov urged employees of the prosecutor’s offices that an amnesty campaign, which the State Duma lower house of parliament had declared in its resolution, should be fulfilled within the deadline.
He also named the protection of rights and freedoms of people among the priority tasks of the supervising agency. “People hope that the prosecutor’s office will respond timely to any law violations,” Ivanov said, noting that this concerns all spheres of our life. He noted that the country’s authorities should focus on the most vulnerable strata of population in the social sphere. In his words, an important task of the prosecutor’s offices is to bring down the pressure on business and avoid unmotivated checks.
